    When I do dry fire runs with my guns, what I am mainly looking to do is figure out, and time, exactly when the striker/firing pin drops. That way I know when the gun is going to fire, and in my own head it makes me not try to fight the recoil as much. Probably more reasons for doing it, so I guess I'll sit back and learn now too! =D

    you should dry-fire on a regular basis even after you're used to the pistol

    In general, focus on your front sight and make sure you've got a smooth trigger press. Dry-practice is also a great time to practice your drawstroke, and reloads and malfunction drills (with dummy rounds of course...be damn sure there is no live ammo in the area).

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    I don't know what you carry, but dry-fire in some brands is not recommended, both owners manuals for my Kel-Tecs say not to dry fire. I would wonder if the Ruger-Tec LCP may be the same?

    When I dry-fire I like to use snap-caps in all my guns.

    Dry-fire, if you use snap caps there is no reason not to do it with any weapon, except the rim fire. The firing parts of the pistol will not know the difference between the caps and a live round. It is good pratice for several reasons.
